5k Race & Family Walk
Date: Sunday, April 9, 2017
Location: Bel Air Athletic Club in Bel Air, MD
Time: 5k @ 8:00 AM, Walk @ 8:15 AM
The 3rd Annual Friends R Family 5k/Family Walk is designed to bring greater awareness to mental health in our community and honor Danyelle Filiaggi. Mental Illness affects 1 in 5 people directly and critical information is needed to help everyone navigate a crisis, seek treatment and recover. Our goal with the Friends R Family Foundation is to bring more attention to this health concern and change the stigma often associated with mental illness.

The 5K course begins at the Bel Air Athletic Club and heads on to the Ma & Pa Trail towards Williams Street via the Best Buy Spur. Runners will turn around at the halfway point and return to Bel Air Athletic Club for the finish.
The courses are entirely on paved and crushed gravel surfaces. For safety reasons, pets, roller skates, and other wheeled devices (with the exception of wheelchairs) are not allowed on the course. Jogging strollers are permitted, but we ask that you start in the back of the pack so that your stroller does not create a tripping hazard.
